I just returned from the annual 4C's convention in Vancouver Washington. It was a smaller than normal convention, but fun and informative as always. It was a great year for me as I came home with a 1st place and 3 honorable mentions for the year. I also had 3 images in the top 80 category. The first place image was one of my water drop shots called For every action... It was very rewarding as it not only was a new category of interest for me, but was also a monochrome image, which is a style I am still learning.
